Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 is a federal law that prohibits sex discrimination on the basis of sex in federally funded education programs and activities, including but not limited to athletic programs that receive federal funding.
TITLE IX STATES:
"No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance." (20 U.S.C. Sec. 1681).
Examples of sex discrimination that are prohibited under Title IX include sexual harassment and sexual violence. Retaliation against anyone who makes a complaint and/or participates in the complaint resolution process is also prohibited under Title IX.
